-uL he first phase oPyour lives is now complete — 
that of being served. From the day of birth until gra- 
duation you have been served by others. We who 
have served you during your Bible Institute days 
have only helped to consummate the growth and de- 
velopment begun in childhood by mothers and 
fathers. With graduation you cross the threshold to 
life's goal of service. From now on your lives are to 
be poured out for others. And in the words of Him 
who came to serve us all, "Whosoever will be great 
among you, shall be your minister." — Pres. S. A. 
Witmer.

e are more than conquerors through Him that 
loved us. There is a "more than conqueror" life. It 
is a present tense life for "we are" more than conquer- 
ors. It is life springing from a person. It is through 
Him, the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a passion behind 
it for it is through Him that loved us. That love nailed 
Him to a cross where He wrought out man's redemp- 
tion and made possible the life of victory. There is no 
other way. Let us go on "Conquering through Christ." 
— Dean J. F. Gerig.

'Christ for Fort Wayne" — a partial view of the audience at one of the services. 



At five o'clock each after- 
noon students leave their 
studies for a half hour prayer 
service. The ''Five o'clock 
Prayer Meeting" is a source 
of real blessing. Many needs 
have been met, and many 
students have been called of 
the Lord to definite fields of 
service in this daily prayer 
service. 

Pictured here are the first 
and second semester Five 
o'clock Prayer Meeting lead- 
ers.

MISSION BAND 



Every Friday evening 
at 7:30 the students gath- 
er in the chapel for the 
weekly Students' Mission 
Band service. This is the 
climax of a week's activ- 
ities. The services are 
primarily missionary and 
have proved to be instru- 
mental in winning many 
battles for the Lord. 

For several years the 
Students' Mission Band 
has supported a mission- 
ary, Miss Leona Lehner, 
who is working with the 
natives of Ecuador. This 
year another missionary, 
Mr. Joseph Shisler, is also 
being supported. Mr. 
Shisler is in Africa. We 
are thankful unto God for 
the opportunity of sup- 
porting these mission- 
aries while they bring 
the Gospel to those hun- 
gry souls in these parts 
of the world.

The Sunshine of this ''day - " of grace casts a shadow- 
across the sun-dial of this dispensation. The time ? 
It's much later than many people realize. It must soon 
be night time . . . when man can work no more. 
There is so much work to do, yet so little time in which 
to do it! 

We wish to remind each of you -- both student body 
and faculty members -- that our earnest prayers and 
best wishes accompany you as preparations are made 
for the spiritual harvest ahead.
